As each year passes, the fat, elastin, and collagen that once plumped your skin begin to break down. The youthful look of baby-smooth skin then gives way to fine lines and wrinkles, causing an outward appearance that often doesn’t match your age, inside or out. If the mirror is no longer your friend, it might be time to soften the signs of aging with cosmetic fillers. Injected directly into problem areas, cosmetic fillers are a great non-surgical choice to achieve a younger look. Not just for wrinkles, cosmetic fillers can reduce the gaunt appearance of cheeks, create fuller lips, and even mask dark circles under the eyes by reducing shadows and puffiness. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Irvin Wiesman, offers multiple options.
Dr. Wiesman loves using Belotero, a new, lightweight hyaluronic cosmetic filler that doesn’t create the puffiness or bumps that are common with other products. If you have dark circles under your eyes, and nothing seems to get rid of them, then Belotero is the solution you’ve been looking for. It’s extremely versatile and can be used to treat multiple areas of the face to remove wrinkles, fix sagging skin, and create a smoother, more even appearance that always looks natural.
Are the lines and wrinkles in your neck aging you? Belotero is the perfect filler for this area because it can be injected superficially – just under the skin. Check out the video from “The Doctors” show and see how easy and painless it is to eliminate those horizontal neck lines so you can put those turtlenecks away!
Finally, a solution for those deep undereye circles that make you look so tired! Belotero is unique because it does not cause a bluish hue – so it is perfect for the eye area.
This “no-lump effect” filler is ideal for enhancing your lips and giving you a more sultry, youthful appearance.
Another new product, Sculptra yields results that can last for up to two years. With three treatments over a period of a few months, patients will see a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to replace lost collagen, yielding results that look natural and will help you boost your confidence.
Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra are two of the most popular fillers on the market today, and it’s easy to see why. They’re able to quickly restore lost volume in several areas of the face to give someone a fuller, smoother, and more inviting appearance, and it can all be done in a matter of minutes using a few painless, strategic injections. Whether you’re bothered by hollowed-out cheeks or thin lips, Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra can easily turn these flaws into distant memories.
For sagging, tired-looking skin found under the eyes, nothing fixes it more effectively than Restylane. Say goodbye to those annoying bags! The big difference between Restylane and other fillers is that it doesn’t absorb as much water, which means it’s less likely to swell if you cry, don’t get enough sleep, etc. It allows you to maintain your results despite the unpredictability of life. With it, even if you’re exhausted, you certainly won’t look like it!
Radiesse is ideal for smoothing out deep creases on the face and giving someone a more defined and striking jawline. It has a thicker consistency compared to other fillers, which gives it the stability it needs to support the skin and keep it smooth in these more bony areas. In addition to filling in the jawline, Radiesse can also eliminate “jowling,” or the formation of wrinkles on the cheeks found below the lips, plus it can help the neck appear longer and thinner as well. A few injections are all that’s needed to create a sleek profile you can trust will last.
